Eyesight of hundreds of thousands at risk

An estimated 290 000 South Africans could become blind as a result of untreated
cataracts, with government facilities in most provinces unable to meet the demand for
eyesight-saving surgery and waiting lists stretching well over a year.

Refilwe speaks to Dr Bayanda Mbanbisa chairperson of Right to Sight, the philanthropic arm of the Ophthalmological Society of South Africa.

19 February 2020 9:13 AM

discusses this with Peter Morgan (CEO of the Liquid Fuel Wholesalers Association, and
former the CEO of the Fuel Retailers Association), and Avhapfani "Fani" Tshifularo,
(Executive Director of the South African Petroleum Industry Association.)
